[Several US-based IT companies are keeping an eye on the Chinese market and are exploring the potential market through CMIS 2010.]
Shanghai -- Hosted by China Mobile Communications Association and Global Leaders Institute, the China Mobile Internet 2010 Summit will be held on April 7th-8th, 2010 in Beijing, China, officially supported by China Mobile, China Unicom and China Telecom. It has attracted world-leading organizations such as the International Telecommunication Union, Mobile Marketing Association, Mobile Entertainment Forum, Hongkong Wireless Development Center and TD-FORUM to be involved as international endorsers this time.
The vendors show great interest in investing in China, the largest potential market in the world, after China's government issued the 3G licenses to the three main telecom operators there. The organizing committee has received hundreds of inquiries and registration calls since they opened sales in December and now confirmed 2 sponsors for its event.
In January 2009, China's Ministry of Industry and Information Technology formally declared its blueprint for mobile Internet development and injected 280 billion RMB into the 3G industry. China Telecom was then allocated operating permit under the standard of CDMA2000. China Unicom gained a WCDMA license, which is deemed to be the most advanced 3G technology now. And China Mobile has put more effort into its own TD-SCDMA technology, as it enjoys the largest user base in China.
"I'm very pleased to see MEF has already been confirmed as an endorser and the partner for the event. For our company, we're very interested in the Chinese market and hope we are involved in the developing plan," said Mathias Prussing, CEO for Comfone AG and Chair EMEA for Mobile Entertainment Forum. Comfone has registered as panel sponsor at the summit and hopes to expand business into the Asia Pacific region through the CMIS 2010 platform.
